BACKGROUND In self-renewing, pluripotent cells, bivalent chromatin modification is thought to silence (H3K27me3) lineage control genes while 'poising' (H3K4me3) them for subsequent activation during differentiation, implying an important role for epigenetic modification in directing cell fate decisions. However, rather than representing an equivalently(More)
The succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) complex exerts a fundamental role in mitochondrial cellular respiration and mutations in its encoding genes (SDHA, SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, collectively referred to as SDHx) lead to a number of inherited endocrine cancer predisposition syndromes, including familial paraganglioma/pheochromocytoma. Recent studies suggest a possible(More)
